  • China, Fujian province, Fuding

    Our Bai Mu Dan is made in Fujian province, Fuding county which lies between Fujian and Zhejiang province in elevation approx. 900m. Bai Mu Dan is made with one bud and two leaves after the individual tea buds that make up Silver Needle have been gathered. Then it is allowed to wither (air-dry) naturally in the air outside or inside the tea factory, which enhances the sweetness and mouth-feel and then it is bake-dried. It is the least processed tea from all six classes. Harvested in spring, mid April.

"Litlle Poetry" by JD

"Every day you sat in this silvery grey shade
Looking over your steading to far-far away
A bunch of hay stalks, sticking from your boots
With your ancient, pale green skin, but calm to the roots.
You know she is coming; her hands are like soft dried apples
Her skin is like a banana peel, with a couple of freckles.
Sometimes she's mellow, sometimes she's peppery
She loves you to death; she is your muse, your true fairy"
